Stephen Tanzer – Light-medium yellow. Pure, inviting aromas of white peach, apple, lime zest, white flowers and white pepper. Juicy but reticent in the mouth, with its concentrated white peach, citrus and floral flavors accented by mint and salty minerality. Finishes pure and long, with a captivating light touch. According to Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel, there was no hail damage here as the estate's vines are situated in the western half of Les Clos, which was mostly unaffected. This fruit was picked on September 6, which had been the forecasted harvest date even before the big storm hit.
